WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH...
WE FACILITATE GLOBAL SOURCING
ABOUT THE INT'L ORGANISATION FOR CRISIS-RESPONSE
The International Organisation for Crisis Response was recently founded as a non-profit membership organisation for the rapid and trusted fair-trade of emergency-relief supplies and equipement.
As a non-commercial trade-facilitator our purpose is first and foremost to connect buyers and suppliers, and provide them with the tools and resources that allow the fastest possible procurement and distribution of supplies and equipement for the management and mitigation of large-scale humanitarian and environmental emergencies.
With the help of proven systems, the latest technologies and a global network of service providers we provide our members with a secure online marketplace where qualified buyers and suppliers from around the world can rapidly transact with each other.
Use the power of technology and humankind's ability to solve complex problems through cooperation, to minimise the negative impact of humanitarian and environmental crises
Current systems are not set-up for rapid and large-scale procurement and distribution of vital emergency-relief supplies and equipement. The processes are slow, the risks are big, qualifying buyers and verifying suppliers from afar is extremely hard.
With the COVID-19 crisis, we experienced first-hand, there is no effective, trusted way for buyers and suppliers to find and transact with each other on a global scale in times of crisis.
Sending our Requests for Quotations (RFQ's) is slow and tedious
Traditional for-profit intermediaries only have their own interests in mind, and this leads to price-gouging, hoarding and speculation
Time, money and lives are being lost
To facilitate rapid and trusted international trading of vital supplies and equipment, between qualified buyers and verified suppliers worldwide, in preparation for, as well as in times of humanitarian and environmental crises
A DEDICATED MARKETPLACE FOR CRISIS-RESPONSE
As a non-profit membership organisation, we use proven trading-systems and the latest technologies to create a marketplace that benefits all stakeholders because it is not driven by commercial interests but by its social and environmental impact.
To guarantee fair pricing and fair distribution of vital supplies in high demand we develop incentives for our users that sometimes go against price maximisation that would be inherent to a for-profit marketplace.
Members of the International Organisation for Crisis Response can either be users of our services or responsible corporations and organisations that want to support our mission by providing us with expertise, resources and funding to maximise our positive impact.
